During the period under review, the Assembly demonstrated good faith, in assisting the Health directorate to improve upon its service delivery. The Assembly has been at the fore front of mobilization of vehicles for District Health Administration to carry out the National  Immunization Days Campaign in the District. 

We have also provided funds for the upkeep of the Nutrition and Rehabilitation centre. So far, the Assembly has paid ¢13.4 million for the haulage of supplementary food relief items for the Health Directorate to enable them distribute food to malnourish children in the district. 

We have also demonstrated serious concern for the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, by providing funds for the District HIV/AIDS committee to embark on aggressive educational and sensitization exercise in the district.  In addition, as part of measures to control malaria, the Environmental Health Unit of the Assembly is networking with the District Health Directorate to procure the necessary items with the 1% common fund specially earmarked for that activity.


The Assembly proud to mention that, we have stretched our tentacles to include support for construction of the needed infrastructure in the health sector in order to improve Health care delivery in the district. 

Last year, under the E.U. Micro projects program, the Assembly succeeded in fencing the Bulenga and Gurungu Health Centres. Under the same package, a Rural Clinic was constructed at DUCCIE. This year, 2 Rural Clinics and a Nurses Quarters are being constructed at Dabor, Domye and Duccie. I must state that, the Rural Clinic at Domye is constructed with the HIPC relief fund.

Touching on Mutual Health Organization, I wish to state that, we are in league with the Health Administration, playing effective facilitator role to promote the establishment of Health insurance schemes in the communities.

A District task team has been formed to educate and sensitize the people on the importance of Health insurance. So far, Funsi and Poyentanga are the only communities in the district where Health Insurance is being practiced to some extent. 

Funsi has reached an advanced stage of the operational of the Health Insurance scheme, as they have launched a constitution to that effect, and are just in the process of determining the premium to be paid by prospective beneficiaries. It is our hope that other communities will emulate the Funsi example so that, we will succeed in scraping the cash and carry system.
